Welcome to my humble site....
Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Keyakizaka46... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!
Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.

Nogizaka46: 'Jalan' press conference pics from June 28th plus videos
The news about Nogi's next single came out a few days ago, the release date for it is August 9th. Will do some digging for more news of it and hopefully can have a post about it later in today. Then again I'm thinking that most of the details will be on this weekend's "Nogi Under Construction" show.
If you're a fan of Nogi pics(who isn't?) then you'll be enjoying this post immensely as there's over a hundred of them to add to your collection. Jalan may have been the last company or product the group hasn't done promo work with, perhaps it's time to see if their popularity can stretch worldwide. Above is a behind the scenes video as Nogi has many CM's coming out for the travel company and the video was a fun watch. Here's some pics for the upcoming CM's and there are two already out.
On June 28th ten Nogi members were at a Jalan press conference which was held at the Bellsal Omenmon Station in Tokyo. Jalan is a huge Japanese travel agency, no word yet if there any vacation packages with any of the members.... if there are then sign me(all of us) up!
Nogi is doing a series of CM's for their Summer vacation packages, two are already out and there will be a few more coming out next Monday. That's the day after the first of their two Summer tour concerts which will be held at the Meiji Stadium in Tokyo. I actually thought the group would be doing a different kind of event today such as promoting their new DVD's. Today there's three concert DVD's that were released for their fourth anniversary concerts which took place last August.
Perhaps there will be an event that will have different members than the ones who were in attendance today. There's two themes for the CM's which are 'Review Hens' and 'Point Hens'. At the event the group also did a mini dance which will be in the CM's called 'Nogi Natsu 46'.
As mentioned ten members were at today's event for the new CM's and all will be featured in them, many of the members at the event we don't see often enough. The first five by the order of their solo pics are Mai, Nanase, Kazumi, Manatsu and Sayuri. The next fivesome don't appear too often at events and they are Yuuri, Minami, Reika, Marika and Ranze. All ten certainly look superb dressed in their yukatas.
At the event the members also said what they like to do on their vacations, things like mountain climbing or going to the sea. The problem is Nogi members seem to rarely get a vacation long enough to do anything, would think just a few days here and there. Plenty or perhaps too many pics from the event and following them is one of the new Jalan CM's.
